Families are encouraged to attend worship service together.  The nursery and room 105-106 will be available for you if you need to bring your child out of the MPR.  Parents are required to stay with their children as there will be no teacher in those rooms.  A closed circuit TV will be in these rooms to broadcast the worship service and coloring pages and crayons for your child.
